hi,
i'm not able to set the pcmcia to work with powerbook G4 1.6Ghz 15"

i had success in pcmcia, setting /etc/pcmcia/config.opt
for these two machines

Code:

#Powerbook Pismo tested with pcmcia-uard: working
include port    0x100-0x4ff, port 0x1000-0x17ff
include memory  0x80000000-0x80ffffff


Code:

#Powerbook G3 lombard tested with pcmcia-uart: working
include port 0x1000-0x1fff
include memory 0x90000000-0x90ffffff


does somebody successfully set the pcmcia for the powerbook 1.6Ghz 15" ?
any idea ?

With 32 bit cardbus cards, it should work correctly without modifying this file (and does on my PB G4 1.67 17"). Unfortunately, I don't have any 16 bit cards to test, but you could try:

Code:

include port 0x800-0x8ff
include memory 0x80080000-0x80ffffff

it doesn't work on pb-G4 1.6Gh with my 16bit card (it is RS232 pcmcia 16bit/5V interface)

it works on my pb-G3 (pismo/lombard)


does somebody use "mercury pcmcia RS232 interface" ?
it is a 32bit/3.3V pcmcia card, i don't know if to buy or not ...
... i mean if it will work

about the aluminium pcmcia issue:

i patched my kernel 2.6.23 for the pcmciautils, and the pcmcia-uart-16bit card seems to work properly
the 2.6.23 + pcmciautils patch seems to be the only working kernel about 16bit pcmcia cards

solved ? it may be
